The Politically Incorrect Jesus
Living Boldly in a Culture of Unbelief
Jesus. He is admired and ridiculed, embraced and rejected. If you want to provoke controversy and emotional discussion, just mention His name.
Jesus was inclusive when He welcomed all the weary and burdened to come to Him and experience the love of His Father. But He was not open-minded when it came to the truth. He stated that He was the truth. And this flies in the face of current politically correct thought.
In Politically Incorrect Jesus, Joe Battaglia exposes the intellectual dishonesty of political correctness and presents Jesus as the model for embracing a counter-cultural faith, which empowers us to be salt and light. Be bold and stand firm in your faith when the culture demands you stand down.
"Joe Battaglia says what needs to be said about the dangers and impact of our politically correct world. It’s a needed wake up call to our culture! This is a MUST READ for anyone wanting to understand our times."
"In The Politically Incorrect Jesus, my friend Joe Battaglia presents an intelligent and common sense approach to how a person of faith can stand up to the current issues in culture that would divide us without pointing fingers or engaging in the culture war. He has interesting perspectives that we would all do well to consider on how to be followers of Jesus to a world that wants to see the real thing."
"No one who reads The Politically Incorrect Jesus will ever view cultural PC the same way again. In bold, no-nonsense, biblically based expressions, Joe Battaglia strips the facade off the culture war and warns believers against the dangers of being seduced by it. The book is a game changer."
"With candor and courage, Joe Battaglia takes on some of the madness of our day as attention is focused beyond the noise of political correctness to the person of Jesus. Timeless truths drawn from HIS life and love are presented with clarity and grace as firm foundations for purposeful and strategic living in our contemporary world. Read it and REAP!"
"This is an important book. It’s a wake-up call to a slumbering Church and culture, a reminder of what is true not what is popular. I highly recommend it."
"My friend Joe Battaglia exposes the ease with which many rewrite the teachings of Jesus. Jesus said of Himself, I and the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me. That sounds anything but inclusive. Battaglia builds a biblical case for society and individuals to return to the truth of the Good News in Christ, a truth entered through relationship, and the only truth that still sets us free."
